On Friday 23th October 2015 is the day that an event call “Model United Nation (MUN)” started at the International School of Phnom Penh. Nine of my friend and I participated in MUN. On the first day, the Chair which is the one who led the conference, told us all the procedures for the event. When the chair conduct the role call, we need to say “present and voting” but for the first time I said “president in voting” because I wasn’t sure what to say. Also for boys if you don’t wear tie, you can’t talk. I am the delegates of Afghanistan by the way. The first day, we just read our policy statement. Policy Statement is a short summarize about the issues in your country and mine is about animals right. After that we go to find the country that have similar issue that your country have and you start what we called “resolution draft”. Resolution draft is you write some solution for the issues. On the next day, we just finishing and we talk a bit about our resolution draft to all the delegates in the room. Then they will make some amendment and vote on it. After the amendment, we vote on the whole resolution draft. When you want to raise your hand, you raise the card in front of you. On the next day, we have a section called “Plenary Section” which all the people in the school come and vote on the high school people resolution draft. In this event we have different level. So I’m in “Junior General Assembly”. After that busy weekend, I was really tired but I enjoy it anyway. I learned a lot and if there’s more MUN event, I’ll happy to participate.

Exploration Dates: August 10th-September 25th 2015
Number of Students: 13
In this exploration, we have a mission to search for some old Cambodian music. We’ve been to Kompong Speu and Mondulkiri province. Our group made a podcast called LigerCast. In that podcast, I am one of the two head editors. I used Adobe Audition CC 2015 to edit my sections. This is my first time doing sound editing and I have just 1 week to edit my sections. My two sections are the one that we called “Random Singers” and “Conclusion”. I know that “Conclusion” is kind of make sense but what is “Random Singers”. Random Singers is a part where the host take a bit about the songs and we play the songs. This is one of the most complicated part in our podcast. I spend about a week working on it and two days working on Conclusion. My biggest challenge is that I’m doing this on my laptop and it has four GB of RAM. It is very slow. There was one time that it crash and I need to do most of the editing back. The thing that I enjoy doing the most is recording, editing and making sound effect. There was one night that one of my friend, my teacher and I went to record frog sound for our podcast. It was raining and I need to make sure that the sound recorder is safe and we have two umbrella so we use one for covering the recorder. First we use the other one to covering ourselves but when the rain drop hit the umbrella, it makes some weird sounds so we need to put away the umbrella that we use to cover ourselves. As you can guess we all get wet. That is one of the thing that I enjoy. This is the attachment of some audio file but unfortunately I can’t embed the full podcast file because it’s too big so you can go to our blog then you can listen to it.
